"nightly news" begins now. >>> good evening. i'm lester holt in for brian tonight. the words and the signals couldn't be clearer. it is virtually certain tonight the united states will not let syria's alleged use of chemical weapons go unpunished. the president today said he has not made a final decision in the course of action, but the case for a u.s. military attack was spelled out in no uncertain terms by secretary of state john kerry. like a prosecutor making an impassioned closing argument to a jury, kerry today made a point-by-point assessment of the evidence against syria, and warning of the consequences should the world turn a blind eye. kerry offered new details of the chemical attacks and the assad government's involvement based on evidence he said was clear and compelling. he said any u.s. response would be limited in its scope, without american boots on the ground. and he revealed that more than 1400 p

may unfold. house foreign affairs member, iliana ross layton will join us for more on the debate whether the president needs the okay from congress before he moves ahead with the military strike. live reports on what is happening on the ground on syria from connor powell, molly henneberg. we have coverage and breaking news with conor powell. >> reporter: the u.n. inspectors left syria today wrapping up a four-day trip. they are investigating claims of a chemical whens attack there. they arrived a few hours ago. this removes a major obstacle for a u.s. military strike in syria now that they are gone. the pentagon no longer has to worry about the safety in syria. now begins the process of analyzing all of the data and the evidence they collected in syria. things like hair and soil samples. the u.n. says it could take two or three weeks before they produce any type of report. however, it looks like the white house isn't in any, isn't going to wait for the u.n. report. secretary of state john kerry said the use of chemical whens by syria is "clear and convincing." kerry claiming the
with syria. the u.s. military now said be ready to launch an attack at a moment's notice of and it comes as we wait to see new evidence that the syrian regime gassed its own civilians. it's an enormous wildfire growing, scorching hundreds of square miles. crews say they're making progress but nowhere near having this thing under control. the latest on that. and a new medical report on how stress can actually speed up the growth of cancer. that's all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. on "studio b." >> but first from fox at 3:00. it's not a matter of if but when the u.s. will launch an attack on syria. that is what a senior defense official tells fox news. officials say the u.s. military is now off the coast of syria, and prepared to strike once president obama gives the okay. and we expect to learn more from u.s. intelligence experts as early as today. they're set to release the report laying out the evidence of last week's reported chemical attack in a suburb of the capital city damascus. some news agencies reported that more than 100 people died there. others said it was mo
middle east. we know the regime has used the weapons, multiple times this year and used them on a mauler scale, but still used them against its own people including not very far from last wednesday's attack has happen. we know that the regime was specifically determined to rid the damascus suburbs of the opposition and it was frustrated that it hadn't succeeded in doing so. three days before the attack chemical weapons personnel were on the ground in the area making preparations and we know that the syrian regime elements were told to prepare for the attack by putting on gas masks and taking precautions associated with chemical weapons. we know they were specific instructions. we know where the rockets were launched from. and at what time, we know where they landed. and when. we know rockets came only from regime controlled areas and went only to opposition controlled or contested neighborhoods. and we know as does the world, that just 90 minutes later all hell broke loose in the social media with our own eyes we have seen the thousands of reports from 11 separate sites in the damascus s
in for piers tonight. we want to well ccome our cnn viewers tonight in the u.s. and around the world there is breaking news in the show down with syria. president obama making a case for a military strike possibly. he says there is clear proof the regime was behind the use of deadly chemical weapons. the president also says he has not yet made a final decision on his military options, but he certainly appears to be moving closer and closer to using force. >> in no event are we considering any kind of military action that would involve boots on the ground, that would involve a long-term campaign, but we are looking at the possibility of a limited, narrow act that would help make sure that not only syria but others around the world understand that the international community cares about maintaining this chemical weapons ban. >> we'll have the very latest developments this hour including graphic video of a new chemical attack. and is the president doing the right thing if he goes at it alone? will it mean for america if he does? i'll talk to the former chief of the united nations weapon
if the syrian government uses chemical weapons to slaughter some of their own citizens, the united states will respond. if the u.s. doesn't respond right now, doesn't he look weak? >> well, i cannot subjectively feel out what other people will feel about the united states. what authority the president of the united states, any president of the united states has to draw a red line that implies that our military is going to be placed in harm's way, i don't think there's constitutional authority to do that and feel compelled without the approval of the congress to carry forth. so rhetoric and losing lives are not nearly as important as making certain that you do the action. so looking weak is not like losing lives, and anybody who has lost people in terms of these wars or intrusions, i know that they would agree with me. >> you served in the military, and you insist that before the u.s. gets involved again in military action around the world, the united states should reinstate the draft. it doesn't look like you've got a whole lot of support for that out there, but you've been raising this i
suggest an imminent u.s. military strike, but rather an update about his decisions on how to proceed in syria. he's been meeting all morning with his top national security advisers at the white house. all this came earlier in the day, the signals were clearly there, even yesterday, officials started arriving at the white house today to go in the situation room, including the vice president, the secretary of defense, chuck hagel, the secretary of state, john kerry. the national security adviser to the president. the top military commanders as well. they've been meeting in the white house. there you see general martin dempsey. the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. there's a tense calm that has fallen across syria as a possible u.s. military strike looms. bill neily has been in the capital city of damascus. we expect in a few minutes to hear from the commander in chief, the president of the united states. i assume they're bracing for some sort of u.s. military strike, whether it happens in a few hours or days. >> yes, they really are. it's definitely tense here. i wouldn't say ther
action against the syrian regime for using chemical weapons, but the president says, quote, this kind of offense is a challenge to the world. that minutes are the secretary of state john kerry addressed reporters and the public, laying out some of the evidence against syria, and while the u.s. intelligence officials are highly confident that assad's regime used chemical weapons to target innocent civilians. >>> inside syria. word the military forces there have made move to prepare for any possible strike. we'll tell you what we're hearing from our sources. that's all ahead unless breaking news changes everything on "studio b." >>> but first from fox at 3:00, president obama speaking just minutes ago, calling syria's use of chemical weapons a threat to america's national security. one, that affects nations all around the world. >> this kind of attack is a challenge to the world. we cannot accept a world where women and children and innocent civilians are gassed on a terrible scale. this kind of attack threatens our national security interests. by violating well-established internationa
. this is special report. >>> good evening. i'm bret baier. the russians are warning us off. syria is promising chaos if we do it, but president obama tonight is said to be considering a military response to the latest chemical weapons attacks in syria. we have fox team coverage tonight. jennifer griffin is at the pentagon. but we begin with chief white house correspondent, ed henry on the politics of the syria crisis both here and overseas and where we are right now. good evening, ed. >> reporter: good evening. they believe that not only that chemical weapons were used but that they can pin it on the sire yan -- syrian government. secretary john kerry flatly declared president obama believes there must be accountability for the use of what he called the world's most heinous weapons. >> what we saw in syria last week should shock the conscience of the world. it defies any code of morality. let me be clear. the indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. >> reporter: kerry's strong response came as u.n
of us know this is the true place, the mother ship. [applause] so i wanted to start this morning by paying tribute. the reality tv rush hour-free zone, which is one of its appeals. now, i can't claim and i am not a true native chataquan like many of you, that go back four, five, seeven six generations. in fact, i grew up outside of boston, massachusetts. i am a patriots fan. admittedly behind enemy lines here in buffalo bills territory. but i was born in buffalo general hospital. so, mr. president, i'd like to apply again for citizenship in chaw tack qua nation. -- chautauqua nation. i'm pleased to be discussing diplomacy. i'm glad that chautauqua has decided to spend some time talking about this venerable art, sometimesis understood, stiemsma lined, but always important as diplomacy. i'm a former career american diplomat. i served five presidents between my first job. i was the lowest ranking person in the u.s. government. i was an intern at our ambassador in mauritania in west africa in 1980. until my last job as undersecretary of state in 2008. and you now have the privilege o
, the president of the united states making it clear he has authorized the use of force in syria, but he's not going to go forward with that execute order until -- until -- congress acts. they're not scheduled to come back from their recess until monday, september 9, then he has the commitment of the democratic and republican leadership in the house and senate. they will take up this resolution that would give the president authority to go ahead and launch a military strike against syria to punish syria for its alleged use of chemical weapons against its own people. so clearly, even though the president has made a decision to go ahead, even though the president has made a decision to go ahead and use military force, he has decided to wait to execute that order until congress comes back, and that could be at least ten days or so from now, if not longer, depending on how long it takes congress to consider such a resolution. and there is by no means a guarantee the president will win that vote in the house of representatives, especially -- likely he probably will win in the senate, not 100%
like israel and turkey and jordan, and it increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorists who might use them against us. we're not considering any open-ended commitment. we're not considering any boots on the ground approach. what we will do is consider options that meet the narrow concern around chemical weapons. >> washington had been banking on the u.k. to assist in a strike on syria, but the british parliament said no, we're not going along with that. they voted against military action. we still have france and turkey with us, but the arab league says they will not back retaliatory military strike, denying obama the valuable cover that he thought he was going to get. earlier this afternoon after meeting with the president and the national security council, secretary of state john kerry delivered the administration's most powerful statement to date on this matter. >> we know that the regime has used those weapons multiple times this year. we know that for three days before the attack, the syrian regime's chemical weapo
ahead. president obama has also been in close touch with teeders ---door key leader us of our allies. make no mistake, president obama believes there mississippi be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people. nothing today is more serious and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny. thank you. >> i'm trace gallagher in for shepard smith. just heard secretary of said john kerry giving his first accounts of the crisis in syria. the secretary delivers litany of what they believe is the proof that chemical weapons were used in syria. as important as what he laid out is what when he did not lay out, is a time line of dealing with syria, going after the regimes. what the did lay out there have to be consequences for any action, any chemical weapon used and said the president at some point in time will decide what to do but made it very, very clear the secretary of state believes there will be some type of action used against sirra, but keep in mind, we have u.n. inspectors on the ground, and seemed to indicate that
joining us. i'm don lemon. we're continuing our special coverage of the syria crisis. you're watching cnn live. you saw the president today. president obama transforming syria's civil war transforming it into a tdomestic issue and putting his own credibility on the line. he will seek congressional authorization. >> that's why i've made a second decision. i will seek authorization for the use of force from the american people's representatives in congress. for the last several days we've heard from members of congress who want their voices to be heard. i absolutely agree. >> the president's decision has opened a whole new conversation here in the u.s. over what to do about syria's civil war. support and opposition for the president's call to action crosses all political lines. members of both parties have lined up in support but vocal opposition is strong. >> i'm troubled by the justi justifications the obama administration has put forth so far. much of their discussion has concerned what they describe as international norms and they have suggested that the u.s. military sh
, a travel warning is posted for americans overseas. and nearly two dozen u.s. embassies are shut down. in fear of terror strikes planned for today. >>> so far, no violence, but now the question of what to do next. >>> all i saw was a car emerging from the crowd south bound on the boardwalk, just plowing through whomever was in its way. >> out for blood? a driver crashes into a crowded california boardwalk, killing one, and injuring 11 others. why witnesses say it was all done on purpose. >>> i can't wait to see my teammates. i feel like i can help us win. i can help us be a better team. and i haven't seen a lot of my brothers in a long time. >> and a-rod insists he has a future with the yankees. but sources say he'll likely be suspended until 2015, all but ending his career. the official announcement expected tomorrow. >>> we begin today with the unspecified terror threat affecting embassies in u.s. interests overseas. the government knows just enough to be on high alert. not enough to know exactly where an attack will occur. and so 22 embassies and consulates in the muslim world are
i say good job. >> that's it for us on "the five." thanks for watching. see you back here tomorrow. "special report" with bret baier is next. >>> the u.s. readies its case against syria and for military action. this is "special report." good evening, i'm bret baier. american war ships in the mediterranean are on high alert as they are prepared to punish a regime that dared to use chemical weapons against its own people, according to administration officials. one senior defense official telling fox news it is not a matter of if the u.s. will take military action against syria but when. meantime, we're waiting for the obama administration to release intelligence backing its claims. we have fox team coverage tonight. fox news military analyst, jennifer griffin at the pentagon, what we know about possible tactics. we begin with chief white house correspondent ed henry on where things stand now. good evening, ed. >> reporter: good evening, bret. at this hour, the president is huddled in meetings whether to inch closer to military action, amid questions whether he will do something he ra
national security. it risks making a mochrie of the global prohibition of the use of chemical weapons. it endangers our friends and partners along syria's borders, including israel, jordan, turkey, lebanon and iraq. it could lead to escalating use of chemical weapons. or their proliferation to terrorist groups who would do our people harm. in a world with many dangers, this menace must be confronted. after careful deliberation, i have decided that the united states should take military action against syrian regime targets. this will not be an open ended intervention. we would not put boots on the ground. instead, our action would be designed to be limited in duration and scope. but i'm confident we can hold the assad regime accountable for their use of chemical weapons. deter this kind of behavior, and degrade their capacity to carry it out. >> the president saying he will seek a congressional authorization of force. making that announcement from the rose garden today, this coming hours after united nations inspectors left syria, arriving in the netherlands today after spending severa

of war. and if a u.s. attack is coming, don't you think syria knows by now? the administration has given plenty of lead time for them to brace themselves so how might the assad regime fight back? i'm john berman filling in for jake tapper today. we begin with the world lead. less than two hours after secretary of state john kerry gave the strongest impression yet that the u.s. will strike syria, president obama declared that he is definitely, positively, without a doubt still considering his options. >> this kind of attack is a challenge to the world. we cannot accept a world where women and children and innocent civilians are gassed. i have not made a final decision about various actions that might be taken. in no event are we considering ne kind of military action that would involve boots on the ground that, would involve a long-term campaign, but we are looking at the possibility of a limited, narrow act. >> now, just a short time before that, secretary kerry used language that sounded quite a bit more forceful as he gave the broad strokes outlining the evidence that the u.s. says it
much. >> will you forego a strike if congress disapproves? >> president barack obama saying the u.s. should take military action against syria but also saying that he will seek authorization from the u.s. congress, talking too house and senate leaders this morning, and he said they agreed to hold 'debate and then a vote when congress gets back. congress is not scheduled to be back until september 9. from the labor day vacation. the president saying that this comes as, he acknowledged, british parliament, voted against prime minister david cameron, for the authorization of force against syria this past week. we believes that he has the authority to president obama said, but he wants congress to weigh in. he said, he wants this action to happen because the u.s. cannot stand by and let chemical weapons be used to gas hundreds of children to death with no action afterwards. he said the implications go beyond chemical warfare and he mentioned the possibility of other countries using nuclear weapons or threatening to do so. he said, we all are war weary in america but it is time to step t
